Birthday celebrations

Our family celebrate quite a few birthdays at the end of January.  It is the birthday of my two nieces and husband all within 3 days of one another.  I have already posted a 21st Birthday card for one of my nieces, unfortunately I forgot to photograph the other card before sending it, but here is the card I made for my Husband 

I used the Need for Speed and Lovely as a Tree stamp sets. One of the trees from the Lovely as a Tree was stamped in Crumb cake onto some very vanilla which had been cut out of the labels collection framelit.   The car  was stamped in black stazon on some very vanilla card, watercolour pencils were used to colour the car and then it was cut out with scissors. Altogether three framelits from the labels collection were cut out and layered up and attached to the card with dimensionals

The top half of the soft suede card was run through the big shot with the stripes embossing folder. The bottom half is some designer series paper Well Worn which has now retired.  Both pieces of card are joined in the middle with a length of not quite navy taffeta ribbon.

  1. A great card, love how you have coloured it, more I see that stamp, the more I think I need it...xx

  2. What a fab 'guy' card, love the colours and the way you have embellished, the little 'flags' at the bottom are a cute alternative to flowers and butterflies lol, I have loads of birthdays in feb, which is my busiest cardmaking month, they are like buses, don't see one in ages and then all three come together xxx

  3. Clever use of the car and Lovely as a Tree. Will be casing this I think. Thanks for the inspiration. Zx
